Patch 1.1.1 also brings multiple fixes for known issues, as well as improvements to the recently introduced Open and Closed Crews.


  • Open/Closed Crew - You can now dynamically change whether your crew is Open or Closed while out on the seas. This option can be toggled from within the 'My Crew' menu.
  • Athena's Fortune Rewards - The chances of finding more valuable rewards have been increased. Pirate Legends and their crews can now expect to see higher rewards when embarking on their Athena's Fortune voyages.

Performance Improvements

  • Further improvements to frame rate when streaming islands.
  • Improvement to frame rate when player is walking or running.
  • Multiple server and client crash fixes.
    Further improvements and optimisations for all platforms are ongoing.

Fixed Issues

  • Washed-up items and messages in bottles have returned to the shorelines once more!
  • Dropping Skeleton Fort keys in water will no longer prevent them from being picked up again.
  • Athena's Fortune Bounty Quest skeletons will now correctly spawn on Thieves' Haven.

  • Players can no longer be voted into the brig before fully spawning onto the server.
